The Chief Guest Fr. Lancy Pinto & the Coordinator Mrs. Flora D’souza gave inspiration speeches to the children as why we celebrate children’s day.



14th November is the birth anniversary of the legendary freedom fighter and first Prime Minister of the independent India (Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru).  This day is  celebrated as the children’s day because of his great love and affection towards children. Though he was a political leader, he  spent his most of the precious moments with children and loved their innocence and became famous as Chacha Nehru among the children.  The celebration of this day reminds us to renew our commitment towards children’s welfare including their proper health, care, teaching, etc.


At this auspicious occasion,   we express our feeling as Children become the happiness of the society and home as well as future of the Country. We can not ignore their involvement and contribution in the life of parents, teachers and other related people.


Children are liked by everyone and without children life become very boring and upset.  Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to them”. They are blessed by the God and conquer our hearts with their beautiful eyes, innocent activities and smiles.


Children are considered as the building blocks of the strong nation. Children are very small but have capability to change the nation positively. They are the responsible citizens of the tomorrow as development of the country lies in their hands. Children’s Day celebration also reminds us about their rights of which they are getting benefits or not. Children are leaders of tomorrow so they need to get respect, special care and protection from their parents, teachers and other members of the family. They are being abused, ill treated in many ways in our nation by their family members, relatives, neighbours or other strangers. Children’s day celebration make us remind about the importance of the children in the family, society and country.


Elders must take care of their children  and see that they should get proper care,  love, healthy food, clean clothes and security  by the parents and family.


Let us join our hands together and take a pledge to secure the present and future of our children  to make a beautiful nation by giving them healthy living environment, their safety at home and outside home, good level of education and also utmost care & love to the disabled or sick children.


Various Telly games & Sport Prize games conducted by the members of Women Cell.  Rani Fernando & Group entertained the children by presenting action songs. Lavina Augustine compeered the Programme.  Sheila Chettiar gave vote of thanks.  As many as 75 children participated in this programme.


Snacks packets and return gifts distributed to all.
